In this series inspired by the beach, Kylie has been inspired by a return visit to her much loved area, Woody Heads, near Yamba in Northern NSW.
Inspired by the energy and movement as the waves crashed upon the rocks, with the sun setting, this painting reflects the impression of each wave, it’s energy and rhythm, as the storm and rain drew near.
